Geoffrey has said these will be ID only-chips. That means that at
particular processing points there will be a reader with no back-end
access; such points would include the roll-calls for sub-events. Some
readers will need access to the back end database, such as the initial
muster when rations are handed out.

I'm intrigued as to the nature of these events, now.
